The College of Science advances mathematics, physical sciences and life sciences and mobilizes curiosity-driven faculty and students who seek to enhance life on the planet through groundbreaking research.
CLEMSON, South Carolina — Although mostly preventable, tooth decay is one of the most common chronic diseases in children worldwide, particularly in developing countries. If left untreated, cavities can be painful and may negatively affect a young child’s overall health, development and quality of life. Clemson University College of Science researchers recently conducted a study […]
Clemson University College of Science faculty member Kara Powder has received a $1.17 million National Science Foundation CAREER award grant to investigate gene regulatory elements that determine craniofacial development and evolution.
CLEMSON, South Carolina —Jeffrey (Ph.D. 1984) and Karen Gambrell Camm (B.S. 1982) know that Clemson is a special place. After all, the couple met on campus in the early 1980s when Karen visited a friend who happened to share an office with Jeff in Martin Hall. Jeff’s career trajectory was influenced by exceptional faculty and […]
To the Clemson Community: These are challenging times unlike anything I have seen in more than 30 years of working in higher education. I know many of you are concerned about your health, and the health of your loved ones – we are, too. In fact, every decision we have made over the past few […]
CLEMSON, S.C. — Clemson University Department of Physics and Astronomy faculty member Apparao Rao was selected as a 2020 Fellow of the Materials Research Society (MRS) for developing liquid-based scalable synthesis methods to manufacture carbon nanotubes — a class of nanomaterials used in numerous applications, including energy storage, medicine, electronics, and composites. MRS confers this […]
A team of researchers from Clemson University’s College of Science recently demonstrated that a novel double-helical MOF architecture, in a partially oxidized form, can conduct electricity that potentially makes it a next-generation semiconductor.
CLEMSON — College of Science graduate student Rebecca MacPherson, a member of professor Trudy Mackay’s research group, conducts genetics-based research that could someday translate into new approaches for treating children born with fetal alcohol syndrome. She’s also an advocate for increasing science literacy and sharing her results with the public. On March 12-13, MacPherson was […]
All Clemson University events have been suspended until April 5. Events scheduled for April 6 and beyond will continue to be evaluated, and any changes will be communicated as soon as decisions are made. Lea Marcotulli’s talk has been postponed until Sept. 11, 2020. Lea Marcotulli stands at the summit of Hawaii’s Mauna Kea at […]
A study published March 9, 2020, in Genome Research titled “Gene Expression Networks in the Drosophila Genetic Reference Panel” is the culmination of years of research by Clemson University geneticists Trudy Mackay and Robert Anholt. Their groundbreaking findings could significantly advance science’s understanding of a number of genetic disorders. Overall, the study lends toward a greater understanding of gene regulatory networks that contribute to human health and disease.
A Clemson University College of Science researcher, together with a team of researchers, developed and demonstrated new optical imaging methods to monitor a single molecule in action. This fluorescence-based technique may accelerate the field of structural biology, helping scientists better understand how molecules are assembled, function, and interact, which in turn may aid in structure-guided drug design.
The estate of Thomas Green Clemson first came into his possession through his wife, Anna Calhoun, well before it was eventually bequeathed to South Carolina to found a college. It’s just one of the earliest ways that women played a vital role in making Clemson University what it is today. The newest women to join leadership ranks at Clemson include Dean Leslie Hossfeld (CBSHS), Dean Wendy York (Business) and Dean Cynthia Young (Science). They are each championing innovation and enhanced student experiences for their respective colleges. These women bring passion, vision, experience and dedication to lasting outcomes to Clemson. From prioritizing community outreach initiatives in support of the land-grant mission to connecting with students, faculty, alumni and business leaders to strengthen the prominence of our research, their work is leading Clemson forward.
CLEMSON — A crime has been committed and 120 students at Westside High School in Anderson, S.C., will use science to help solve it. Someone has stolen the Clemson Tiger mascot’s costume, but thanks to DNA evidence left at the scene, the students can use forensic science to help catch the culprit. This was the […]
CLEMSON – The College of Science’s department of chemistry will hold the fifth annual Chemistry Department Research Symposium from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, March 14, at the Watt Family Innovation Center. During the event, the chemistry department will share its research and accomplishments of the past year with the Clemson community. Prospective graduate students will attend […]
CLEMSON — Mathematician, magician and professor Arthur Benjamin brings his fast-paced presentation to campus, performing high-speed mental calculations, memorization tricks and other astounding math stunts. His talk, “The secrets of mental math,” will take place at 11:15 a.m. on Friday, March 13, 2020, in the Watt Family Innovation Center auditorium. The lecture is free and open […]
Update: The event below has been cancelled. For more information, contact Kursten Anderson at email@example.com. CLEMSON – The Clemson Biological Sciences Annual Student Symposium (CBASS), which was to be held Saturday, March 28, has been cancelled. To participate, please submit a presentation for CBASS 2020, which welcomes all undergrads, graduate students, and postdocs involved […]
